Our Mission and Values
Beechwood has well-established Mission and Values, embedded in School life.
Beechwood’s Mission is to be a leading UK prep school. To fulfil this ambition, with the support of parents, the School:
- Nurtures the happiness, health, safety and emotional well-being of every child, developing in them confidence and independence;
- Engages the intellectual, physical and spiritual potential of every child across a broad range of academic, extra-curricular and pastoral activities and experiences;
- Inspires children, inculcating transferable, lifelong skills and values by which to achieve personally and contribute influentially to society;
- Enables inspirational and reflective teachers to provide every child with outstanding teaching, delivering the highest levels of educational pace, variety and challenge.
Alongside Beechwood’s Mission, the School has sixteen Values which sit at the heart of the whole school community, providing the foundation for care and concern for one another and good discipline, helping children to understand for themselves what is good and right:
Appreciation – Aspiration – Collaboration – Courage – Curiosity – Diversity – Forgiveness – Friendship – Humility – Integrity – Kindness – Patience – Perseverance – Resilience – Respect – Trust.
These values help to create a community focused upon positive ways to demonstrate good behaviours, allowing children to develop the ability to think for themselves, act responsibly and develop a clear moral code.
